|Little Red Riding Hood Theme|
|They had this cute photo background setup so we clicked one of the kiddos.|
|Cinderella Costume the bodice was made by modifying "E&E's ruffle dress (affiliate link).|
|The kids were big fans of the carnival.|
|Ryder's Contractor Apron was made by Momma Shaffer last Christmas and was one of the 3 costumes he had as possibilities this year (Leaf Monster and Cracker Jack Suit were the other two).|
I guess I'll have to do Little Red Riding Hood another year because it seemed more useful to make Ty a princess dress. About 3 weeks ago I was given some sky blue knit that I was unsure how to use it, except to make a Cinderella dress. I also had some white shiny slip fabric on hand from when I got married. Yay, Ty's dress was another free project.
|Boston's Jean Jacket and Dress came Momma Shaffer she picked it from a thrift store bag sale. After Scary saw it she decided that it would be fine with her costume not being homemade.|
|Heber in his store bought Horse Costume|
The thing I've learned from my sisters is that if you have to make do or get creative, just do what works. Halloween will probably be a whole lot more enjoyable if you're rested and healthy. Also if you know of any local trunk or treating, this is safe and simple. Then make the actual night of full of friends and family fun. I've come to the conclusion that Halloween can be as complicated or as simple as you want it.

|A Herd of Cows|
This summer we went to Dress like a Cow customer appreciation day at Chic-fil-A. It took about 20 minutes to transform the group into cows. A herd of cows would be a fun family costume idea.
Here is a flash back way into yester year when Momma Shaffer made our Halloween costumes. I remember that we could be what ever we wanted for the school celebration but the requirement for night time trick or treating in elementary is that you had to be able to fit a snowsuit under it.
